Kscope19 Financial Close Track Highlights - Julien Coudrette

Here is an overview of a few sessions track lead, Julien Coudrette is most looking forward to at ODTUG Kscope19 and why he will be attending them:

Hey Google: What Are Some New Innovations in EPM Cloud: Financial Close - Rich Wilkie, Oracle Corporation

Oracle is investing heavily in machine learning and artificial intelligence. In this session I am expecting to see a lot of cool demos showcasing what they have been able accomplish in the past year. I will be looking for ideas to improve my clients close process, for example by leveraging intelligent process automation.

Keys to the Kingdom: Key Concepts to ARCS Application Design - Nick Boronski, Alithya

ARCS is becoming more and more widely used. This session is intended for HFM or FCCS administrators and users; it should help you understand the key conceptual differences between ARCS and HFM/FCCS and give you the fundamentals to be more proficient when approaching ARCS.

Rapid Acquisition Integration with FCCS and Handling the Underlying Accounting - Krunal R Kapadia, KPMG and Lee Smith, Inmar

Acquisition integration is something that invariably happens during the life of a consolidation application. I am looking forward to learning the emerging best practices in FCCS, including how to set the purchase accounting data for proper cash flow presentation and translation.

Julien is a director in Grant Thornton's Business Applications practice, where he creates financial close and tax reporting applications integrated with the broader EPM and Finance environment.
